The ah-ha is more than insight. Sit and contemplate long enough and you will likely get some insight. Sit and talk with a skilled professional and you will likely get greater insight than you could alone.
The ah-ha is a significant insight that shifts reality in a profound way. Once you have had a true ah-ha, you can never go back to the old way of thinking or being.
Ah-ha's are individually driven or therapist assisted.
Individual driven insight is preferred.
The most meaningful moments are when someone stumbles across this moment on their own, The ah-ha happens the clients head, it means nothing if it doesn't connect up two otherwise disparate pathways in the mind. And this is a neurological event. Like a goat taking a different track and all the other goats following it thus forming a new goat-track path, the neurological network is changed forever when an ah=ha occurs because the action creates new connections between previously related yet disconnected pathways of information or experience.
Imagine if this could happen, over and over, in a single session.
BrainSpotting can be a stream of ah-ha's
This individually driven series of insights is therapeutic gold. Sometimes its just one big ah-ha, sometimes its a series of little ones, but the ah-ha events are spontaneous, timely, relevant to the issue of concern and often connecting information that a therapist could spend months even identifying as relevant.
